My good friend Alberto Pighixxx created a wonderful reference of the $9 Arduino compatible board and I wanted to share it with everyone. In this tutorial I will show you how to make a reference to the $9 Arduino that will last for a long time. You can view the reference here:

Using the Adobe Viewer open the BEcardboard.pdf that you can download from here:

http://borderlesselectronics.org/igg/BEcardboard.pdf

Then select print from the file menu. Make sure you select Actual size under the Page Sizing & Handling section.

Step 2: Laminate your reference guide

Go to a Fedex office or other place where they offer lamination, and get your reference laminated. This will protect your reference from tearing, water damage, and other things that can harm paper, allowing you to enjoy your reference for years to come.

Step 3: Finished

You can now put your Arduino compatible board on top of the laminated reference and it should fit perfectly allowing you to use it as a good reference. 

Enjoy your $9 Arduino compatible reference!!!!!

I want to thank Alberto Pighixxx for the work he has done with these great images. You can check out more of his great work here:

Good idea. I'll have to make one of these once my batch of $9 Arduino's arrive in the mail. Looking forward to it.
